Yes, currently Frank is an all time top 10 HW. But like you said, his career is dwindling down. He did not accomplish enough in his peak to cement a legacy and it's pretty obvious he will be pushed out of all time discussions.
Cro Cop was a great win for JDS.
Next to Cain, Mirko was JDS toughest fight in the octagon.
End of round 1: JDS takes the stool with a mouse under his eye.
End of round 2: JDS takes the stool with a mouse under each eye and a bloody nose.
If I recall correctly, I agree with 1 of the 3 Sherdog judges and had it 1 round a piece going into the third.
